0.0.0.82 Beta (Mar 20, 2005)
The Windows Lock feature really only serves a point if you turn off fast-user-swiching... then it will give you that message saying "This computer is in use and has been locked, only or an administrator can unlock this computer."
1.0.1 Release Candidate (Mar 10, 2005)
I will give it a 3/5
It is nice, there are a few problems that stop it from being my choice over Outlook:
1) It's Outgoing mail server selection is very limited, and I have a very complex setup becuase port 25 is bi-directonaly blocke on my connection.
2) It does not have an option to run in the System Tray, and I run it all the time, so this is important.
3) It does not handle rembering passwords very well... it really needs to bind them to my account settings rather then useing a password manager.
The spam filtering is nice, but I use Spamihilator that has all the features of Thunderbird's learning filter, and a number more features that make it more effective, so I don't use Thunderbirds spam filter anyway.

The toolbar is the best thing that ever happened to Internet Explorer.
I use Firefox, so it does not do me much good, but it is still a great toolbar.
If only everyone would use Google before asking a question on IM or message boards. lol.

VNC is nice, however it is too much work to have to get SSH working just to use encryption. I use VNC because it has more security, and can map drives, etc.

The Mozilla Firefox will block all of the pop-ups on the pop up test, and let the good ones through.

The Infinity + 1 idea were an April fool’s joke, and they just set the 2 GB increase at the same time for fun.
That was similar to the Google Gulp page that they had up at the same time.

I think Microsoft is being a bit tough on there point to invalidate the 32bit license when 64 is activated, as I would try it for a triple-boot (XP 32, 64, and Linux), but this removes that possibility.
I will get it, but I do not see myself installing it until I find that all my device drivers are supported under 64.

This is not the first time that state has taken the turn towards companies instead of the choice that is best for the people:
"including a draconian law now on the books in Pennsylvania, which strips local governments of the right to choose their own homegrown broadband solutions without the prior approval of a monopoly phone company. In late 2004, Verizon dictated the law word-for-word to local legislators..."

They were not asking for a fix within 24 hours, they were just asking for a human responce saying that they were working on the problem and would have a patch in the next two or thee weeks, etc.
That is not too much to expect, and it is important for customers to know about a problem to protect themselves.
Not that this realy effects me, as I am running Linux at the moment.

When I look at the two browsers, they are just about the same, other then Firefox has Tabs, Find as you type, and more extensions available.
The largest difference in security comes from the fact that Firefox does not have ActiveX support.
How many legit sites use ActiveX? Not many.
How many deliver spyware/adware/Trojans that way? A large number.
I use Firefox because of the features and because it does not support ActiveX controls.
I rest my case.
